By Liz, enjoying the first glimpse of spring and warm weather!
I’ve been living a triple life lately. There’s the day job, the writing job, and the new business job. And then there’s, well, life, but that’s a whole other story.
In any case, I was thinking about the trajectory of my writing life as I’m working on my new book, and working through getting Spirit Writers up and running. And I realized how cool it is when things come full circle.
My business is all about helping people come back to their creative selves using all manner of spiritual tools and practices. You know, the woo-woo stuff: crystals, essential oils, meditation, oracle cards, etc. My new book, which I can’t wait to share with you (I hoped I’d have an official name by now, but soon!) allows me to dive deep into a lot of these tools in my fictional world.
Ok, I’ve been dying to do this so here it is: A sneak preview of the book. My main character is Violet Moon, and she’s a witch. But she doesn’t know she’s a witch until, through a series of unfortunate events, she’s reunited with her mother, who she hasn’t seen since she was a child.
Violet owns a crystal shop and one of her superpowers is pairing people with the crystals they need, even when they don’t know exactly what their core problem is. Crystals have been a huge part of my life for many years, and I use them for tons of things – including my own creative journey. And now I get to teach people about them, both in my business AND in my new book. And I love the whole witchy vibe so it’s perfect!
I’m still figuring out how to weave essential oils into the book, but this is another tool I’m so excited to be able to share with people. I’ve been dabbling in oils for years, but last year I started to use them in earnest and really learn about all the awesome things they can do.
I feel like it’s fate that these two things are happening at once – I’m so excited for both of them and I can’t wait until I can tell you more about the book!
In the meantime, come on over to the Spirit Writers Facebook page and join the conversation. And tell me below – do you use any woo woo tools? Love witchy things? Share so I know there are kindred spirits out there!
